I’VE NEVER BOUGHT THIS MANY ART SUPPLIES!
Hello there! So, now in my last video I mentioned that I was going to be going out on Black Friday to Michaels to buy a bunch of art related stuff, mainly canvases and a lot of you seem to be like, hey, you should film that! You should film what you buy, so I thought I would do like a vlog style video for you today to show you, what? Where I’m going, what I’m buying, and yeah Black Friday, if you don’t know, you probably, you know what Black Friday is, I’ve got the little, uh, the brochure thing here and yeah, they have 70% off all of their canvases. The academic artist and professional canvases are all 70% off so I am going in and I am buying as many as I can possibly fit in my car. And I’m not gonna vlog in the shop because there’s going to be tons of people and I’m super self-conscious, but I thought I would just take you along with me anyway, and just show you what I buy. So… *inhales nervously* yeah. We’ve got all of these packs of canvases for $12. Such a bargain! It’s crazy. And over here, they’ve got some wooden ones as well, which I’ve never used. I’ve never painted on wood before so I think maybe I might try that because I’ve never done it and it might be quite fun. I had this little desk here many years ago and it was really really good and 99 dollars is a really good price. *laughs* For that, and they’ve got some easels as well, like tabletop ones. THIS is what I’m talking about! (Whispering): Look at this! Look at this! Look at this! Zoom in dammit. Look at all these canvases (whispering): for 70% off! Oh my god! So all of the Canson artist paper pads are 40% off which isn’t that great a sale, BUT, I have a 30% off entire purchase including sale items, so it should work on these making it very very very cheap, which is awesome. Look at this here like, black drawing paper. How cool is that? Also, they’ve got some marker paper as well, which I don’t have, so I’m definitely gonna get a pad of this. Other than that, I think that’s all I’m gonna get. *Laughs* Have I bought enough, do you think? I might get a pack of these as well. That was awkward. This is an amazing price for the Tombow markers so I’m gonna buy some of these pastel ones. And we are… very much full. And I’ve got the big one in the back! I bought too much stuff. Okay, I am back with the most stuff I’ve ever bought in Michaels on Black Friday before because they were having an amazing sale and I bought more than I went in for. *giggles* I am in a rental home still – but it’s kind of like an extended holiday uh, so I don’t really have anywhere to put any of this stuff because this room is small, and the best part probably of this entire trip was when I went to the registers to pay for all of this stuff and the guy on the register looks at me and goes, “Do I know you?” and I was stood there like “Does he recognize me from YouTube, or do I just have a familiar face?” Like I didn’t want to presume either way so I was just like, “I don’t know, do you?” And I’m like, why in the world did I say- so stupid, why did I say that? And he goes, “Do you do YouTube?” and I was like, YES, and he goes “Chloe Rose Art”. And I was like, *Loud slamming noises* YES! (Chloe): What’s your name? My name’s Luis. (Chloe): Hello! Well, I’ve been recognized for the first time. *laughs* You’re in Michaels, of all places. (Chloe): Yeah, well Iovely to meet you. Lovely meeting you too. It made my day. So thank you Luis. So I think it makes most sense if I start off with the obvious, this thing, this is a 30 by 48 inch professional standard gallery wrapped heavy duty canvas, so it’s a little bit big. So it initially cost $74.99, but they were 70% off, so I ended up getting it for $22.50. Now actually the first thing I saw when I went into Michael’s was this rolling cart. Now, I’ve seen this cart online and I fell in love with it because it was like mint and it’s like, useful and I walked in and this is what it is. Now, I don’t know if this thing was actually on sale, it says it was $30 on sale but I’m pretty sure it was more than that before. So yeah, I bought this, it was $30 and in my opinion it’ll be so helpful and mostly because it’s mint and I love mint green and it was the last one. So I was happy about that, I was like “that is mine! Everyone else get away from it.” I would say I’ll attempt to put it together for you on camera, but it’s probably requiring about 20 screwdrivers I don’t have. The box was slightly damaged, so I’m hoping that it’s not damaged inside but… fingers crossed it’s okay. Ohh, it’s so mint! It’s so mint. Let’s hope it’s in mint condition. *laughs sarcastically* Okay, it appears to be totally undamaged so that is great. You know you’re in trouble when you got a little box like this. *Metal clanking* Okay, so this canvas is a 20 by 20 and it’s, again, it’s a gallery heavy-duty professional level canvas that’s like, the nice thick stapled ones. This canvas is usually $34.99 and I got it on sale for $10.50 so very very happy with this. I think it’s a nice size for a canvas too – next up I did get the 10 piece set of like, the cheaper canvases. They were all 8 by 10. Just for like practice, for like quick little paintings that I can you know, put on sale for cheaper cuz of the thinner canvases. And yeah, these cost me $12 which – I always get these every single year, they’re $12, right? Yes, so these are normally $26.99 and I got 10 pieces for $12. So, very very happy with that. I think I’m just gonna get through all of the canvases first and then I’ll show you all of the other stuff that I bought. I bought this little $10 snowman, like can you see that? I don’t know if you can see that, but there’s like little snowmen already printed on the canvas for like, kids to fill in. It’s got the like, the little art set at the back as you can see there, and I am going to actually make a video on this and just paint over the stuff that’s already on here because I just thought that would be fun, but put my own little twist on it type of thing, so that was ten dollars. So not bad. I got two 6×6 square canvases and these were… these canvases are normally $9.99 each which is, in my opinion not bad to begin with but I got them on sale for $3 each which is in- *Dog barking in background* Can’t wait to move. But they were on sale for three dollars, which is incredible to me and I’m very excited about it. But um, yeah. That’s what they are and the last two campuses that I got were these big 8×8 professional quality canvases and they were usually $11.99 and I got them on sale for $3.16, so… So these canvases were actually Doorbusters, and Michael’s had a 30% off everything including sale items coupon, but because these are Doorbusters, they don’t include the Doorbuster stuff, but everything else that isn’t a Doorbuster was an extra 30% off. So I bought myself some Tombow pastel brush pens and I didn’t actually realize that these were on sale until I walked past them. Umm, these normally sell for… $26.99 and I got them on sale for $12. All of their Canson sketchbooks were 40% off, which in general isn’t that great a deal because you can usually, even if they’re a regular price, get a 40% off at Michaels all the time. Sometimes even more than that. But, they were 40% off with an extra 30% off coupons. So they worked out very very cheap. So I picked up this black drawing… sketchbook, it’s all black paper. Not sure what I’m gonna do with it yet. Probably something with Prismacolor pencils, I would imagine would look really really cool in this but, I don’t know. I’ve just, I can’t say I’ve ever seen a black sketchbook before. It worked out to be $6.71, which is such a good price. I actually regret not buying more sketchbooks to be honest but I did end up getting the last thing I bought. Was this Canson marker paper because I don’t have any marker paper at all, and I just thought that… it’s actually thinner than I expected it to be but I’m curious to see if… it’s not going to allow cause I’ve got all of those Copic markers now to see if it allows them to not bleed, because when I was using them before on another paper, they were bleeding. So fingers crossed this works well, and this was Initially, this was $15.99 as well, but with the extra coupons, $6.71, which I think is a really good price. I am tempted to go back and get some more sketchbooks because they are so cheap, but… I probably won’t. So the total price on here isn’t exact because I actually bought a handful of other small things that were for my mum, for my brother. Umm… On my receipt it says, and it’s about this price, I saved 212 dollars and 81 cents. That is everything that I bought. Everyone was asking for me to do this. So hopefully you will enjoy the video. I will be using the- all of these supplies at some point in my future videos, so make sure you keep an eye out for them. And if you’d like to see this video again next year please let me know, give this video a like if you would like to see it again and And yes, thank you so incredibly much for watching, I hope you enjoyed the video, take care of yourselves and I will see you in the next video. *Music*
